Indie 103.1 Goes Off-Air… On-line!

Indie 103.1 Logo Siting the pressures of pop-corporate radio games, Indie 103.1 has dropped out and tuned in... online. Effective immediately, they are ceasing broadcasting over the airwaves, and have switched all streams to www.indie1031.com. Hopefully this means lots more independent artists will be featured in their call to play "simply put, only the best music". Sad that it will take a minor revolution to make public airwaves interesting again, but at least there are options for companies not wanting to play the same old games. (Granted this whole thing could be just a silly publicity stunt to get blogs like ours to drive traffic to their website after they decided that broadcasting on the internet was a whole heck of a lot cheaper than keeping up a radio license.) Click through to read the entire press release: Indie Activist: This is an important message for the Indie 103.1 Radio Audience - Indie 103.1 will cease broadcasting over this frequency effective immediately. Because of changes in the radio industry and the way radio audiences are measured, stations in this market are being forced to play too much Britney, Puffy and alternative music that is neither new nor cutting edge. Due to these challenges, Indie 103.1 was recently faced with only one option --- to play the corporate radio game. We have decided not to play that game any longer. Rather than changing the sound, spirit, and soul of what has made Indie 103.1 great Indie 103.1 will bid farewell to the terrestrial airwaves and take an alternative course. This could only be done on the Internet, a place where rules do not apply and where new music thrives; be it grunge, punk, or alternative - simply put, only the best music. For those of you with a computer at home or at work, log on to www.indie1031.com and listen to the new Indie 103.1 - which is really the old Indie 103.1, not the version of Indie 103.1 we are removing from the broadcast airwaves. We thank our listeners and advertisers for their support of the greatest radio station ever conceived, and look forward to continuing to deliver the famed Indie 103.1 music and spirit over the Internet to passionate music listeners around the world.
